Red Sox options for the potential replacement of Jackie Bradley Jr.

Has the Jackie Bradley Jr. era finally run its course with the Boston Red Sox? The mercurial center fielder will be a free agent after the 2020 season, but the real issue is before 2020 and it is money – isn’t it always? Bradley will go to the arbitration table and be rewarded for somewhere in the comfortable vicinity of $10 million. How do you replace Bradley if he is traded?

Defensively, the Red Sox current trio of outfielders are interchangeable, meaning either Andrew Benintendi or Mookie Betts – who may also be traded – can shift to center.
